Summary: great martial arts cast
Comment: I'll go out on a limb and give this one a 4 stars. Though it feels like your basic average martial arts flick (and unfortunately, another lame movie taking place in the run-down future), the martial arts cast and amount of fight action make up for it. Though the fights aren't overly impressive, and some of these guys are used to giving a stronger performance, it seems there are fights every 5 minutes throughout the film. And I have seen plenty of worse fights in other films too. If it weren't for the action and cast, this movie would flop.

Billy Blanks. Jala Mehri. Bobbie Phillips. Matthias Hues. Bolo Yeung. All 5 star in this film, and all 5 are impressive martial artists. While the first 2 guys I mentioned (Blanks and Mehri) are not the most popular among fans, and are lousy actors, they still deliver solid action. The last 2 on the list (Hues and Yeung) are easily everyone's favorite B-movie action villains. Even better, they fight each other in this movie - a dream match come true. Its amazing how quickly Bolo is dwarfed by the mighty Hues. Bolo is actually a good guy in this film, but its not his only movie in doing so. Hues is always the bad guy 99% of the time.

While the movie's title (Tc 2000) refers to improved human beings, created into life-like cyborgs after death (just like Universal Soldier) , only one charcater becomes a unit in the movie - Zoey, played by Bobbie Phillips. The movie focuses mainly around her. She is killed in front of her partner (Billy Blanks), recreated into a TC-2000 unit, and lured by the bad guys. She's pretty tough and gives the Billy Blanks character a good beat down at one point in the film.

Overall, the movie pretty much stinks. But there aren't many martial art films that contain quite as much fighting as this one. There are very few with this kind of martial arts cast. And this is the only one where Bolo Yeung fights Matthias Hues.

Summary: TC 2000: run time 91 minutes -91 minutes too long that is
Comment: Funny how I can smack this flick for stealing precious minutes of my life that I'll never get back yet here am devoting more time to it. Father forgive me for I have sinned -I have this viewed this movie more than once.

With Billy, Bolo, Matthius and Jalal this is like the "Super Mario All-Stars" of B-Movie kung-fu action. Essentially the future sucks and everyone fights 24/7. Want to buy a bag of water? Well put that money away son 'cause fighting is the currency of the land. Dialogue only exists here to build laughable excuses for more fight scenes. Oh look its been about a minute and 36 seconds since the last jump kick, I think we're overdue for another fight scene.

I can honestly, unequivocally say that this film has the most fighting I've ever seen. Even movies like Bloodsport that are solely about nothing but fighting, don't come close. Marvel at Billy as he stumbles to complete full sentences. Scratch your head at the inane and unnecessary plot twists. Laugh at the strikes and mis-timed reactions (notably at the end with Matthius and some random good guy, just watch, believe me you'll see). And finally, drink plenty of water, from a bag if you must 'cause once this bad boy's over you'll feel hung over.

Summary: Booo!
Comment: This movie is not good. This movie is a martial arts flick without the benefit of descent fight scenes. I know the cast is capable of more. This movie is about a cop trying to free his precint from corruption. Much of his rage comes from the fact that his partner Zoey was killed by chriminals who were fed thier location. Zoey is then turned into a cyborg milatry soldier whos uniform is a diamond studded leather teddy. Dispite having no emotions she trys to be sensual she smiles and laughs and has technical difficulties when people say her name.

The only redeeming factors are the training scenes where Bolo Yeung performs kata with Billy Blanks. I loved seeing them move the way that fighters do. It's better than trying to make Zoey the swimsuit cyborg do funky backflips without showing any angles to verify her identity.

I give this movie three stars for great training scenes and -1 star for embarrassing themselves for the rest of the movie

Summary: TC2000
Comment: I think that this is one of the best Billy Blanks movies that I have seen,that is in my own opion. It had a new age world type of setting and the action was good enough for me.However for the price I would keep looking,only because I would never spend alot of money for just one movie.
